What does receiving this money mean to you?
Receiving this money means that I will be able to buy a motorcycle for business. My son will be ridding it , carrying customers in the near by town of mbale thus generatiing money for the family use. This money shall be used for educating my children such that they may have brighter futures.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My happiest moments is always afternoon hours after getting lunch. I relax while chatting with my children as we plan on how to manage some development issue for the family progress.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest harsdship I face currently is lack of an income generating activity. I do not have any source to get money for maitaining the needs of my family members. My family members are lacking most of the basic needs like proper feeding, shelter and education.
